Subject: BHA: Terms of Jugement (call for help)
Date: Sun, 29 Apr 2001 18:50:29 -0400


<html><DIV>I am in the middle of a book review, and I am stuck for a piece of Bhaskar terminology.</DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Bhaskar has a pithy way of making the following distinction: we must accept relativism insofar as we have to allow that differing perspectives (beliefs, social situated-ness) will produce different judgments.  But we don't have to abandon the possiblity of rationally discriminating between judgments.</DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Is this "judgmental relativism"? or is judgmental relativism the name for the absolute relativism that Bhaskar is arguing against?</DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Do I even have the quote/summary right? (close?)</DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Where can this distinction/quote be found? </DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV> </DIV>
<DIV>Help!!!! <IMG height=12 src="http://216.33.240.24/emcrook.gif" width=12></DIV>
